Thread: New WCC with New Office

  1. #1

    Default New WCC with New Office

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone please help me? Can you bill a new WCC with a new Office visit?

    Example: Patient comes in for a 4 year visit and while being seen, mom states that patient is having other complications. The doctor treats the patient for those problems. Do I bill a new WCC visit and new Office visit or new WCC and established Office visit? Thank you you in advance for your help.

    Only one of the visits can be a new patient visit, so your WCC can be new and your problem E/M is established - Once you've provided the new patient service (the WCC), then the patient isn't new again for the office visit E/M.
